Mark Robertson
Execution Pending
Thursday, April 11, 2019 (all day)
Texas

Mark Robertson is scheduled to be executed in Texas on Thursday, April 11, 2019 for the murder of 81-year old Edna Brau. Mr. Robertson was sentenced to death by a jury through a procedure  deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court for its exclusion of the mitigating evidence that Mr. Robertson had an abusive father and a history of drug use. Though the Supreme Court vacated Mr. Robertson's sentence and a three-judge panel in 2002 ordered he be resentenced, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the ruling and ordered his execution to go forward.  The Supreme Court has denied hearing Mr. Robertson's appeal of the Fifth Court's decision. 

Write the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to ask for clemency for Mr. Robertson. Personalize this one-click letter to advocate on his behalf.

In Texas, the Governor MUST have the recommendation of clemency from a board or advisory group.
